A Lunch Recipe that will Stay Warm until Lunchtime

As parents we all know how much energy kids need to make it through the school day, especially if we want them to get the most out of learning and playing. That is why sometimes a sandwich or salad just won’t cut it when it comes to making a good back to school kids lunch recipe. Plus, a cold lunch rarely allows for much creativity or the inclusion of some of our favourite dishes from family, culture or heritage. So how can you ensure your little one gets a nutritious and warming injection of food in the middle of the day? Find the right tools and choose your best kids lunch recipe. Well, here at Citron, we have some ideas for you……

Keeping Things Warm

One of the best ways to ensure your kid’s midday sustenance stays warm until lunch is by ensuring you have the right equipment. Our vacuum-insulated thermos food jar is just the right choice since it can keep food warm for up to six hours and chilled for up to seven hours – that is a lot of classes it can stay fresh through! It is also leakproof and made from 304 food-grade stainless steel, making it extra durable and long-lasting. Available in two capacity sizes, the food jar is also made with toxic-free, sustainable materials so you can feel confident in purchasing an eco-friendly product for your kid to take to school everyday. Unlike many of the alternative models available in the market, our food jar for kids has a 1-click easy-open function and removable inner silicone for easy cleaning, making it especially appealing for both kids and parents.
